Weekly Bloggertunities – 2/22

Sponsored Posts, Reviews, Freelance Writing, Bloggers, Mom Bloggers, Blogging Opportunities

“Let others lead small lives, but not you. Let others argue over small things, but not you. Let others cry over small hurts, but not you. Let others leave their future in someone else’s hands, but not you. Not you.” – Jim Rohn

Go big, or go home, right? I love this quote above…. Some people blog as a creative outlet. Some bloggers use it to promote a cause or idea that they’re passionate about. For others, {like me} it’s more of a business. Whatever your motivation for blogging – You probably spend a ton of time on it, and are always looking for new ways to grow and improve. I have some really cool projects coming up that I think you guys will love – some things to help boost your blog up to new levels, and bring you new opportunities. Until then, I hope that these weekly Bloggertunity posts are helpful to you. And as always – if you have a fun event open for sign ups, a linky or blog hop, or an opp that you have permission to share – I’d love for you to leave a comment below!

  2. Thanks SO MUCH for putting together this great list, Meagan! What a great resource!

  3. Girl, how do you have time to do all of this for US?! Thanks for all your hard work!

  4. Thanks for these great ideas! I’m familiar with most of them but love it when you come up with one I’m not!

  5. Excellent post. I’m looking into a lot of these. Thanks so much for sharing with all of us.

  6. A few of these are new to me. Thanks for sharing!

  7. Thanks for putting this great list together. I sure appreciate it. I am clicking on a few of the links to find out more.

  8. Thanks for these tips, they are so useful. I’ve been looking around your blog and really like it, you have great blog advice. Funny enough, I read you write for Examiner! I do too, I am the Celebrity Headlines Examiner (there are a few of us, my name is Anna Sanclement) I am also the CW Examiner and the Secret Circle Examiner. They are fluff subjects, but easy to write and they bring decent pageviews… I recently started a mom blog and am trying to grow it, so your tips really come in handy! I will certainly use them to try and grow my readership.

      You must keep pretty darn busy too – that’s a lot of columns :) And your examiner topics sounds super fun – I’ll have to go and check them out. I just started with Examiner, and haven’t really gotten it worked into my schedule yet to post as regularly as I’d like. I plan to start posting a couple times daily though, by next month, and then do some promotion to really gain some subscribers there. It’s fun to have that local place for me to write, in addition to what I do here. Good luck on your blog – It’s so much work, but FUN work, and well worth it!
